New Year’s Day is kind of an arbitrary designation. Just because the (Gregorian) calendar tells us something has changed, doesn’t really mean anything, does it?
But what does signify change is the energy that we as human beings bring to the day. It is precisely because a multitude of us, collectively, believe that there is something special about New Year’s Day that there is. That, and the fact that there is a new moon today, which brings its own (very real and not at all arbitrary) energy to the dance.
Change is in the air, and conditions are ripe for it. A new year dawning. A new beginning. What will you do to harness the powerful energy of this New Year’s Day and put it to work in your favor?
This morning the Dalai Lama posted on Facebook: “Today, as we wish each other a Happy New Year, let us determine to be more sincere, compassionate, warm-hearted human beings, trying to make our world a more equal place. That way we’ll actually make it a happy year.”
Change. In the form of sincerity-turned-to-action. That is something I can definitely get behind. I can’t imagine anything I could resolve to do or become that would be more significant than that.
Wishing you each an abundance of Love and peace and joy in your lives this coming year. And always. How will you make it manifest?
